I was thrilled because it was the first time we held the UTT event in Mercato Centrale -- our home turf.

It was a lot of fun even though there were long lines that merged into one choo-choo train line around and outside the tent.

We had the right combination of savoury and sweet products that delighted the foodies.

I was happy to meet Sam Miguel, Mr. Movember PI himself! Check out Movember PI

"Movember PI is the Philippines’ version of a moustache growing charity event held during November each year to raise funds and awareness for a good cause. Movember is a portmanteau of the words ‘moustache’ and ‘November'.

At the start of November, guys register with a clean shaven face. The participants, known locally as Mo Barkadas, have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their Mo, raising money along the way to benefit men’s health – specifically prostate cancer or some local charity."

sayang! walang pic yung Sassy Sisig booth :( next time, next time...

=) looking forward to the next one! I had fun!

I really enjoyed being there. By the end of it, i was dead tired, but my heart was very happy to see the faces of the foodies! Thanks for the opportunity!

Congratulations. Anton, for another awesome event! This was my first UTT event, and I can't wait for the next one, and thanks too for the link!

Thanks and you are welcome :)

Yey! I had so much fun tasting EVERYTHING, it's also my first UTT event and my first time in Mercato and I'm happy to have met Anton in person! :> To the next UTT! Can't wait!

Congrats to the successful event. Though the place was really crowded as most food stalls were near each other, making little room to fall in line, the event was worth skipping work :D

I'm one of the foodies in the group shots ... nice! Thanks Anton!
